THE FOLLOWING IS A GUEST POST FROM AUTHOR CARRIE DUNN

You may have noticed the influx of British talent to NXT in recent months - and you may be wondering who on earth they are. Have no fear - I am here to help...

Adrian Neville: If you've kept even half an eye on independent wrestling in the past decade, you'll already know full well who Adrian Neville is. William Regal keeps reminding us that this is the man who gravity forgot, and he's been thrilling the Full Sail crowds with his high-flying, spectacular (and spectacularly dangerous) move-set. Just a shame Bo Dallas lost him his tag-team belt, really...

Oliver Grey: …but of course Dallas was only partnering Neville because of the injury of Oliver Grey, who started his career in the English county of Devon (down on the south-west coast) before working all over the UK. He's no stranger to tag wrestling, having held championships with former partner Mark Haskins, latterly of TNA.

Andy Baker: Baker - originally from the north-west of England - has recently debuted on NXT. He's spent several years associated with US wrestling promotions, including a lengthy link-up with OVW, now TNA's training territory.

Danny Burch: OK, so far you've only seen him on television to be squashed by Bray Wyatt, but this is a talented wrestler. He's worked (and held titles) all over the UK and Europe, he's previously been a tag-team champion with Doug Williams, and has been highly-rated by the gospel of Pro Wrestling Illustrated.

Paige: This second-generation star has the potential to be one of the UK's best exports. She's the daughter of former SHIMMER champion Sweet Saraya, as well as her former tag partner. Her road to the WWE was chronicled brilliantly in last year's documentary 'Fighting With My Family' - and it makes you realise just how tough it is for an 18-year-old to move halfway across the world, even if she is chasing her dream.

Rebecca Knox: Another brilliant British-trained wrestler, she's actually from Ireland but as part of her training was at NWA UK Hammerlock, we'll lay a little bit of a claim to her. You might have seen her in her early career stints with ChickFight and SHIMMER before she retired due to injury. It's good to see her back - and it'll be even better to see her against Paige, who'll want to take up where her mum left off, feuding with Knox for titles.

Want to know who the next UK wrestlers heading to WWE will be? I profile some of the best of the current crop in 'Spandex, Screw Jobs and Cheap Pops' (http://www.amazon.com/Spandex-Screw-Jobs-Cheap-Pops/dp/1909178462/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1373293886&sr=8-1&keywords=spandex%2C+screw+jobs) - which features interviews with British stars including Nigel McGuinness, Magnus, Doug Williams, the Blossom Twins and Sweet Saraya, and goes behind the scenes at WWE tryouts to find out what they're really looking for.
